I've been trying to reproduce this problem without success. Can you please paste the output of the following two commands?

 ls -ld /lib/firmware/brcm
 ls -l /lib/firmware/brcm

Please also let me know if you've ever installed any extra packages or manually added any firmware files to support your bluetooth or wifi, or anything else along these lines. Thanks!
